Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered Shares Countdown Illustrations
Square Enix has begun sharing countdown illustrations for Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered ahead of its December 1 launch. We’ll be updating this article with each newly revealed piece of countdown artwork.
The first illustration, counting down seven days until the title’s release, is by Tomomi Kobayashi, depicting “Marda, the deity that created the game’s world of Mardias, with Saiva, the Goddess of Destruction, said to be his wife, and the strongest of the gods.”
The second illustration, counting down three days until the title’s release, is by Tomomi Kobayashi, “showing the gods leaving the world of Mardias save Elore, the son of Saiva and the god of compassion, and Nisa, the Goddess of Earth, one with the land and unable to depart.”
The third illustration, counting down two days until the title’s release, is by Tomomi Kobayashi, and it depicts “Mirsa, the Champion of the Gods and the legendary hero of Mardias, where the game’s adventure is set.”
The fourth illustration, counting down one day until the title’s release, is by Tomomi Kobayashi, and it depicts “the legend of Mirsa, the hand of the gods, defeating and helping to imprison the Lord of Destruction Saruin.”
This was the fourth title in the franchise and an essential step in the series’ evolution. Back on the Super Famicom (the Japanese Super Nintendo), it introduced a non-linear structure to the series and allowed players to pick one of eight protagonists, each with their own background.
Although your character has their own story, exploring the world can vary wildly depending on the player’s choices. Romancing SaGa also featured the Glimmer system, allowing characters to learn new skills during battle depending on which weapons and skills they use.
While the original SNES game never made it to the west, its PS2 remake came over. In Japan, this was called Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song-and it’s the version getting a remaster.
Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song- Remastered is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam, and mobile via iOS and Android devices on December 1, 2022.
